Student exchange

Student exchange

Biology Education Centre has a lot to offer in student exchanges. Both for current students going abroad, or students at other universities coming to Sweden.

If you already are a student at IBG, you can find more information about going out for exchange studies on our student pages.

Exchange studies – coming in to Uppsala University

If your home university has a student exchange agreement with Uppsala University, you can apply to the courses at Uppsala University that are taught in English. You can view these courses under courses. Your application should be to your home university who makes the selection of applicants.

You can view all the universities with which Uppsala University has exchange agreements with at Uppsala University central webpage.

In addition, Biology Education Centre has international exchange agreements of its own with several universities in Europe. These universities are listed below. If your home university is not listed, please contact our Student Exchange co-ordinator (for contact see bottom of this page) to find out whether we have an exchange agreement with your home university.
